I hit a lot of these little ponds in NJ. On an average day within 2 hours I can pick up a few dozen with about 3-4 being 1ft or larger. They don't fight as much but they are still fun to catch.
12" bluegill? Holy cow- you are blessed
I have caught some shellcrackers that were 11 or 12 inches, but no 'gills! Are you guys sure my 5wt rod is enough, LOL...
